Service Engineer Fabio Poli tells his work and life story on L’Eco di Bergamo

20 October 2019

Fabio Poli has been a service engineer for Olsa since 2000, traveling the world to test and start Olsa’s equipment for nearly two decades.

The newspaper L’Eco di Bergamo dedicated an article to him and his job, which took him to 59 countries and “out of office” for 250-270 days a year. The “globetrotter technician” as they called him shows a great dedication and passion for his job.

His experience shows how a company can grow with its employees.

«Still today for every assignment I have the same enthusiasm as the first day; I consider it a unique and formative work and personal experience», says Fabio.

Il “collaudatore globetrotter” come lo hanno definito dimostra ancora oggi una grande dedizione e passione per il suo lavoro.

La sua esperienza dimostra come un’azienda possa crescere con i suoi dipendenti.

«Anche oggi, ogni incarico è vissuto con lo stesso entusiasmo del primo giorno e lo considero un’esperienza lavorativa e personale unica e formativa», dice Fabio.
